Mini Doughnut Factory Redefines the Morning Treat

In case you haven't heard, the Mini Doughnut Factory has arrived in Tampa and it has more than impressed the local Tampa crowd. Their selection of toppings and doughnut bases has lured curious diners. Their gluten-free offerings have helped them reach an even larger local foodie audience. 

Owned by the husband and wife team of Patrick and Ze Ruddell, Mini Doughnut Factory is one of the first mini doughnut shops in the country. In the mood for bacon, M&Ms, cinnamon, Fruity Pebbles, Oreos, Nutella or a combonation of toppings? You can basically satisfy absolutely any craving you have at Mini Doughnut Factory. We'd highly recommend the cotton candy pop rocks doughnut, and the maple bacon mini with a cup of cold brew to wash it down. 

The shop is a proverbial dreamland of treats you adored as a child and have grown nostalgic for as an adult. The word exquisite seems to be an inadequate qualifier for what the Mini Doughnut Factory offers. Awesome, delicious, sensational all fail to capture the glory of these mini creations. They're a simple, photogenic delight that redefine breakfast. It is the spot you need to experience ASAP and is one of the best new small businesses to open in Tampa. 

You can have your doughnut and drink it too at Mini Doughnut Factory. Their staple doughnut shakes are hearty delights designed to combat Florida Heat. On Saturdays and Sundays you can expect to run into a long line of eager doughnut enthusiasts. You can call your order in ahead of time at (813) 254-5374. Click HERE for a full menu. 

They're open Monday through Thursday from 6:30am-6:30pm, Friday from 6:30am-9pm, Saturday from 7:30am-9pm and Sunday from 7:30am-3:30pm.

Datz Ups Dessert Game with Doughnut Ice Cream Cone

Datz is known for creating unique indulgences for the Tampa community. They've sparked a new kind of following with the addition of the behemoth Doughnut Ice Cream Cone. You'll have to arrive at Datz early in the day if you want to get one because they sell out quick. 

The cones of decadent perfection come in a variety of flavors but our personal favorite is the choclate cake cheesecake with salted caramel.
